Too much coal, very little water

January 15; Ramgarh, Jharkhand

Unchecked mining leads to many adversities, dropping levels of water in the ground is one of them. Parej East Mining Project, in Ramgarh district of Jharkhand, has left the surrounding areas dry. Villagers who work as manual labourers have no access to drinkable water and the only source of water is a polluted stream nearby. For those who gave up their lands on the promise of economic development, the present working conditions are like salt on their wounds. Community Correspondent Basanti Soren reports.

Call to Action: Please call the General Manager of the East Parej Mining Project on +91 8987784281 and ask him to ensure that the workers at the site get drinking water and other facilities.
